With results lasting an average of 3-4 months, botox injections are a long-lasting, but still semi-permanent treatment for those seeking to banish lines and wrinkles. While you’ll get the best out of botox by having top-ups when its effects start to fade, there are a few things you can do yourself to help prolong results. Here at Rebecca Taylor Aesthetics, a skin clinic in Suffolk, we have special insider knowledge about this popular injectable – and we’re eager to share our secrets!
Tip 1: stay out of the sun
One of the main reasons our clients ask for botox treatment is because they want to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These are most commonly caused by sun exposure, so it makes sense to try and avoid, or protect yourself from, the sun. While you can cover up skin, a simple way to stay sun-safe and help prevent wrinkles from forming or deepening is to use sun protection every day. SPF30 or higher is ideal.
Tip 2: let your skin breathe
After botox injections, it can be tempting to use face masks or incorporate an exfoliator into your beauty routine. But while this might seem like a good idea, it can actually irritate your skin, especially when it needs time to heal. You don’t want to undo all that good work! Another piece of advice is to wait at least 6 weeks between treatments. Having too much botox can make you appear ‘overworked’ and can affect your muscles.
Tip 3: plan ahead
Botox injections aren’t a one-off treatment. To truly experience lasting results, you’ll need to put a treatment plan together, with sessions every few months – and we can help. Regular sessions will help prevent new wrinkles from forming and manage the ones you’ve got – and with a professional Independent Nurse Prescriber like Rebecca Taylor in charge of your care, you can be sure you’ll achieve brilliant, lasting results, every time.
